The Strandhotel is located close to the The Hague city centre, the beach and dunes, and is therefore an ideal place to start your activities from. We have selected a few of our favourites for you.
The Strandhotel is located by the beach and nearby the nature conservation area ‘’Meijendel’’. Those who are interested in walking routes, can get a print of our own created route throughout this area. Besides this nature walk, we also have planned-out walks available through the historical centre of Scheveningen.
We advise the experienced walker to download the routes designed by the Dutch AAA (ANWB) and stichting Wandelplatform-LAW. Less than 200 meters walk from the Strandhotel you will find the long-distance-walking path named: ‘’Hollands kust pad’’ which is connected to another walking route named: ‘Het Marskramerspad’’
The surroundings of the Strandhotel offer beautiful sights for cycle fanatics. You can find 3 cycling routes In the vicinity of the hotel: The "Noordzeeroute", starts directly behind the Strandhotel, The startpoints of the "Midden-Nederlandroute" and the "Prinsenroute" are only minutes away from the hotel. If you prefer to design your own cycling tours, this can be done by using the fietsknooppuntennetwerk?
Directly opposite the hotel is guarded area where you can leave your bicycle when you are not using it. If you are using an electric bicycle , please do not hesitate asking us to charge it for you. Don’t feel like taking your own bicycle? You can rent them at the Strandhotel for € 10,00 per day.
Scheveningen is the capital city of the Netherlands when it comes to surfing. Those who think surfing can only be done in Hawaii or France, are wrong, because the North Sea has a lot to offer. Never been surfing before? We recommend you follow a class at Surfschool Hartbeach or Surfschool Aloha.
Been surfing before and/or are the owner of a board, then we are happy to provide you with information concerning local weather conditions, the tide, the various ‘’surfspots’’ and the weather forecasts.
Powerkiting is one of the most spectacular activities on the beach. Glope Events gives workshops where you will learn how to launch, land and control a kite. If these actions are under control, you can learn how to "ski" behind a kite and make jumps by using the power of the kite. These workshops are also a great preparation for kite surfing.
Accommodation at the Strandhotel is the perfect location for a golfing trip or holiday, because you will find eleven different golf courses within 15 km reach of the hotel! Both the beginner and the more experienced golfer can enjoy him/herself on the beautiful polder, forest or dunecourses. After a day on the golfcourse, the Strandhotel and the boulevard of Scheveningen offer several possibilities to enjoy the 19th hole. If you have any questions about the golfcourses in our surroundings, please do not hestitate to contact us.
